These are the pictures that Colleen sent back from China.

Inze Canyon

China's Grand Canyon, north of Korla, (southern Tian Shan.)

Well worth the visit. Wind & water erosion. Sand, mudstone. In places there are
cemented pebble beds & much folding /faulting. Upstream I walked over beds
of ice, the sun has little chance of penetrating the narrow canyon.

Canyon Entrance Canyon entrance
Jagged Rocks
Jagged Rocks in the Southern Tian Shan mountains. Mud & sand eroded, almost vertical strata.
